I would implore anyone who ever wrote it off as a soulless remake to dig a little deeper with a rewatch, because you might just be surprised at how great of a modern horror movie it truly is.

A remake of the 1979 film, The Amityville Horror tries for a clasic sense of creeping suspense, but is sadly inept.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

A really bad remake, for a bad movie...

This is a slightly better-than-expected remake of the 1979 film of the same name.

Less frightening than just unpleasant.

Against the odds, the remake rivals the original for sheer mediocrity.
September 10, 2006
the original wasn't really that great, nor did it have a substantial cult following to justify a remake. So, unusual as it may be, this remake is a much, much better film.

The best thing I can say about Andrew Douglas's remake of The Amityville Horror is that it gave me a reason to track down the original film.

The movie's only aspiration is to be a jacked-up re-jiggering of a name-brand horror 'classic.' It sets out to be not just schlock, but pre-chewed schlock.

... The Amityville Horror is the best horror movie of the year so far. Faint praise, to be sure, but at least it's R-rated.

December 6, 2005
The Amityville Horror is just another decidedly bland, but mildly entertaining, horror film churned out in the rush to cash in on the reemergence of horror in Hollywood.

Douglas logra varios momentos de tensión en los que, si se va al cine con la suficiente intención de disfrutar la película, llega a generar uno que otro buen susto.

out-fakes the first film ups the dosage.

The problem with The Amityville Horror is that, in a very real sense, there's nothing there.

not really that good but better than the other eight previous movies

The prime victims are children who are shot, threatened, tortured and killed without any hesitation or reason other than to provide quick thrills.

Another of those recent horror pictures that you resent while in its presence and forget immediately afterwards.

Reynolds is well cast in the lead - it's genuinely upsetting as the house starts to chip away at his Nice Guy persona. He also spends a huge amount of the film either half-naked or dripping wet, if you like that sort of thing.

Punchy, frightening, and far slicker than the original - but for all the refurbishment, something's still not quite right with this haunted house.
May 14, 2005
... routine remake of a 1979 horror classic.
